Every year hundreds of thousands of birds come to visit Tualatin River National Wildlife Refuge on their journey along the Pacific Flyway, one of the ‘highways in the sky’ extending from the Arctic to South America. Than In the spring, birds no bigger than a tennis ball will fly over 5,000 miles north to nest in the Willamette Valley. Many of these colorful migrants rest, nest, and raise their chicks at the Tualatin River National Wildlife Refuge. If you are patient, visitors may have the chance to observe, photograph, draw, and paint these colorful birds.
Please join the Friends of Tualatin River National Wildlife Refuge for this year’s 4-day celebration of these amazing avian animals! Activities for all ages including over 50 lectures, workshops, walks, tours, and hand-on activities are planned from beginning bird walks to special photography paddles along the Tualatin River. 2011 offers the most extensive variety of activities and we can’t wait to see you there!
